    Anyone up for writing a poem about the colour white?

    Fair enough.. I just thought it was one of the priciples of the form, but each to his/her own I guess..

    i like to title my haiku, the fun is in the title, i enjoy having fun
    there is no rules in a title

    I understood that haiku are not supposed to have a title. I have noticed that everyone titles their haiku here (and on many other sites) and - though I am limitted in my knowledge of the form - is it not true that they should stand alone, without a title?

    I look like the fall of a dogtrack sliding down the drunk side of Bukowski's thigh in the deep afternoon reflected from a bottle of Budweiser pressed to the lips of a green eyed women being ridden by the spirit of Muhammad Ali- At least, it's what I've been told, asleep and dreaming.

    Well Mark, an 'adonis' or a 'doughnut'....Hmmmm strange contrast either way. I doubt I am the only one curious about how people here really look.

      I agree with you...but that's the beauty of the world-wide web, I guess. When I get around to it, I'll put a real picture up.

    Boo! Scared you- popping in to say hello- may not post for awhile- PH's deep santeria voodoo curse worked on me and these pills- they're calming me down a bit.

    Those false teeth were terrible. I discovered that you made them out of wood! What a cheapskate! It's ok though, because I don't really need them. I prefer most foods pureed. Ever had pureed prime rib? Mmmmmm good.

    That was me Mark, and I said 'dentist.'
